Many of Kansas's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Kansas's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.
|We do not handle dog or cat problems
. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Douglas county animal services
for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses,
pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Lawrence animal control for wildlife issues.

Lawrence Wildlife Removal Tip: What should I do if I find an orphaned baby skunk wandering about? If you were to spot a baby skunk wandering around alone, you might think that the skunk was orphaned but that's not always the case. What if the mother were just moving her babies from an old home under threat to a new and protected one? What if she's on the hunt for her baby and heading right back to that spot where you find it right now? Moving the baby isn't a great idea. If the mother comes back and can't find her young, she'll move on and take care of the rest of her babies, leaving you with a baby that will inevitably die without its mothers milk. If you must do something with this skunk, keep a watchful eye over the little guy, but keep a safe distance - the mother won't come anywhere close if she knows you're near. If nothing happens after a period of time has passed, it might be time to call a wildlife rehabilitator. If the mother doesn't come back for the baby, the baby will die very quickly, either from cold or starvation, or by being attacked by predators. At the very least, a wildlife rehabilitator can provide a humane, quick and painless death for the critter.
